Michael Jen

Architect

STATEMENT OF PASSION: Michael's passion is building relationships. He believes that architecture is about mediating relationships: between drawings and a building, buildings and the city, cities and their climate. But more importantly, architecture requires close attention to the relationships between the people who are designing, constructing, and living in the built environment. Whether spatial, symbolic, or personal, Michael enjoys building relationships through architecture.
